    Fantasy Football used for teaching math in school

    Teachers unions don't protect crappy teachers...that's is bs rhetoric those that despise unions would have you believe. It provides them with due process and an opportunity to improve or be fired. i know this as I've served as a union rep in my district for years and have seen bad teachers continue to be bad and fired as a result. Yes...there is no need for attacks as we live in a democracy where each is allowed to have there own opinion. The problem today is that everyone takes things personally instead of engaging in meaningful discussion and not even being willing to look at the other side of an issue.

    Weepaws...Are you a teacher? You make many blanket statements about educators as if you are an expert on them. In your opinion, what does good teaching look like? Was it how you were taught as a kid? If so, times have changed and educators do much more than your blanket statements reveal. In the teaching profession there are bad teachers, which is like any profession...some good, some bad...but most are very good at their job. Educators have to be very innovative and when teaching struggling, at-risk students or kids in general these days. You need to find creative ways to teach standard skills. This may embrace the use of the stock market or fantasy football and may look nothing like the way you were taught. In your opinion fantasy football is considered gambling, but if money isn't exchanged, what is truly being gambled...the data that can be used to teach math or analytics? The teacher isn't using FF to teach winning or losing...simply math standards in a way that holds students' interests. This isn't a teacher taking the easy way out...they are trying to differentiate their curriculum in a way that meets the needs of their students and that doesn't equate to taking the easy way out as they need to first find ways this would align to the curriculum, develop lessons and support materials to teach it, constantly evaluate student performance and the success of using this unit to teach the chosen aligned content, and make day to day adjustments in order to supplement their teaching for students who need additional support and practice. So before making blanket statements about teachers, you may want to speak to a few quality educators and then find out what the teachers union really does...which isn't making their teaching load easier!

    Wildcard Weekend - Lions at Seahawks: In-Game Discussion

    Lions need to go in a different direction. Other than Stafford, the team lacked playmakers on offense and they just had no imagination. To top that off, Caldwell and staff made zero positive adjustments in the last 4 games unless you were rooting for the other team! Last nights game was tough to watch in the second half...the first was sadly marred by dumb penalties they self inflicted and too many drops by players being paid way too much. Seattle did have a few calls or no calls go their way, but it wasn't the difference in the game. Good luck to the Seahawks and their fans next week in ATL.

    He's just ineffective and has been pretty much all year except vs Cleveland
